Relief showing two gladiators

Relief showing two gladiators (gladiatrix) in a fight. Each of the women is armed with a sword and a square shield, but no helmets. As the preserved inscriptions on the stone indicate, Amazon and Achillia fought each other, and the stake of the fight was an honorary draw. The object was found in Halicarnassus (Southwestern Turkey). Dated on the 1st-2nd century CE.
